Lost interest in Carrabba's since the remodel several years ago. Since we are not crazy about dining in the main dining room, the bar is comfortable and sufficient for having appetizers and a glass of wine. Pretty consistent. Mussels are always a favorite, as is...More

Carrabba's is a quite popular restaurant in Lakeland. Usually, the service is attentive and friendly. The food is quite good, however the overall impression would be improved 100% by binning the pityfully poor, dried parmesan and using freshly grated instead. The Marsala Chicken is recommendable.

I use to frequent the Carrabba's in Tampa all the time. Food was always excellent. At this particular location, the Chicken and Veal marsala is not quite up to par. For the price you pay, it should taste better. Also let me say this, you...More

First, the Filet was the oddest tasting/looking filet I've ever seen. And it took them 3 tries to get the temperature as I requested. Other than that, the food was good and the service was very good.
